We believe that Maths is an essential for everyday life to carry out practical skills, as well as to solve problems.
Our Nursery and Reception curriculum draws on the Development Matters framework. In Reception the focus is on numbers to 20, strategies for addition and subtraction as well as an understanding of shape and space. Within Reception there are three role play areas (one in each class and one in the playhouse) where maths opportunities are included. Children are often more receptive to open dialogue with others when engaged in play and these provide excellent opportunities to practise their mathematical skills.
Our curriculum for Years 1 to 6 draws on the National Curriculum, with lessons planned to develop children’s understanding of number, use efficient methods to calculate, solve maths problems and reason mathematically. The school follows the Maths Mastery programme of teaching maths.
We are proud of how:
- Our children enjoy engaging in maths lessons and show resilience when faced with problems.
- Over the past 3 years, the school has achieved results at the end of Year 6 which places it in the top 20% of schools.
